This book compares the protests against nuclear power plants in Germany and the United States. The book compares the beginnings of the anti-nuclear movements, the movements in light of the energy crisis, and their declines. This book places cultural perspectives on reactions to nuclear power and actions taken to make opinions known. It addresses the major nuclear accidents, including Three Mile Island and Chernobyl, and the repercussions each had from the point of view of the anti-nuclear movements. The book is the result of social science research, the results of which were used in theories about trends in the social movements; the raw data in the form of interviews and cultural studies, and the methodology are presented in appendices. There is an extensive bibliography.
